Tairseach by Dairena Ní Chinnéide

Tairseach meaning ‘threshold’ is an apt title for this collection of poetry by Dairena Ní Chinnéide because all of the poems examine places that are in-between, not quite in one place and not quite in another. These poems are particularly relevant and timely as they investigate the changing landscapes of our lives over the past two years. The spaces between can be a source of meditation and of change. These changes and questions are examined by Ní Chinnéide in this powerful and thought-provoking new collection.
